Should be fun. The car is great to drive once you get used to it. There are a couple of corners that will send the car loose if you exit in 2nd so best to keep it in 3rd on most if not all. Those of you that haven't purchased Sebring, do it. Its a fun track and totally worth the purchase. Bring your red bulls

Drove this car for a while last night and it's a blast to drive. Be VERY careful with the throttle, throttle is everything in the car and brake in a straight line as much as you can. Keeping the car out of 2nd gear is best IMO. Best lap I put down last night with the fixed setup was a 1:25.4xx.

well guys some of you have heard the terrible news about the theft and destuction of my caddy. here is what happend...i was going to the store and all i need to do was run in and buy a gallon of mile for my cereal, and i had a snickers bar in my car and i did not want it to melt so i left the car running with the ac on so it would not melt. When i came back out my jaw dropped to the floor as i did not see my car where i left it. I thought "OH NO I hope he does not eat my snickers. well i called 911 and reported the car and the snickers stolen. well earlier today i gat a email from the detective and he sent me this pi of my car but i asked him about the snickers bar and he sent me this pick what a relief the snickers bar was just as i left it un eaten.

From various talks with competitors it seems as though the baseline for this car is quite terrible so I am looking for an easier/more predictable to drive setup for this car so that this event will be more fun and not just a grind. As soon as I find something acceptable I will be sure to put it up ASAP and notify everyone of this change so they can practice with it as much as possible before the event. The event will still be "fixed" but will be fixed to a different setup.

Yeah, the baseline setup is a beast to drive. I remember that when I tested it at Laguna Seca.

It is most definitely a handful. I am looking through the rook cts section on the iracing forum and will test out several tonight to find a setup that is both fun and decently easy to drive. We will have our hands full enough trying to drive in the dark for a two hour stint.

To me the reason that we are going non fixed setup this season is the same things you are struggling with..
Open setup everyone can use what they have, share it with others and try to find what suites them best.. "finding" a setup that you feel, or even a few people feel is the "right" setup for everyone is a fail.. The first race of the season is the day before this event.. And I am pretty sure there will be about 10 different setups being used that day. I think you might be wanting something out of it you just won't find.. My opinion is the only way to make it "even" is to let everyone decide for themselves what works best for them...

I think this car is the equalizer as well.. I don't think you have to try and equalize the field by neutering there ability to make the car more drivable for themselves.. And it is not like I have this awesome setup that is just amazing.. No I suck with the car.. But I have also noticed how much more I suck with the car based on different setups that other people like. You will find this for yourself tonight..
